Benefits: Becoming NetMission Ambassadors
The NetMission Academy offers motivated individuals the chance to further their understanding of Internet Governance issues. Graduates of the academy can become NetMission Ambassadors, working together with a team to build an initiative for the development of the Internet and advance the governance discussions in Asia. Part of this includes being an organizer of regional conference activities for youth.
The NetMission Academy is a series of online sessions designed to equip youth with the knowledge and discussion skills to participate in Internet policymaking. The sessions will include one orientation webinar, followed by 7 training workshops. These 1-hour workshops will be interactive discussion sessions, with expert guest speakers selected for each topic.
This online academy is not a one-sided learning program. Selected fellows will be assigned into thematic groups to research and prepare for the respective session as a host. All fellows are expected to actively contribute to discussions. If you are a student in tertiary education (undergraduate or postgraduate) and are interested in how the Internet impacts society, this is the program for you.
Academy is open for young visionaries who want to make a change for the betterment of the Internet and our community. Full-time students currently enrolled in any tertiary institutions within the Asia Pacific of all disciplines are welcome.
Upon completing the NetMission Academy, those who are passionate to create an impact with collaborative effort can become part of the network as NetMission Ambassadors.
Ambassadors will form working groups based around their areas of interest from each theme. Each working group will be assigned a mentor with experience in the field.
NetMission Ambassadors will have the chance to apply for the demanding role of organizing and hosting youth activities at some of these events which involves moderating a policy discussion dialogue. A separate process will be initiated for recruiting the organizing committees for respective events.
